What Is Crawl Space Encapsulation?

Before crawl space encapsulation, that part of your home is a dark and dingy area. The process of crawl space encapsulation removes any damaged insulation and other material, insulates the walls, and wraps the walls and floors with poly sheeting. It effectively removes the problems you are experiencing.

Who Needs Crawl Space Encapsulation?

Most, if not all homes would benefit from crawl space encapsulation. It is especially important, however, for those who are already experiencing the following problems.

Moisture Problems:

Moisture tends to be a problem in most crawl spaces. As a result, you might have problems with mold and wood rot. It can also impact the air quality and comfort in the living space.

Indoor Air Quality:

Have you noticed a decline in the quality of your indoor air? This can be directly related to an unprotected crawl space. You may notice that those with respiratory issues, such as asthma, may have difficulty breathing.

Mold and Mildew:

Do you have mold and mildew in the crawlspace? This is due to the moisture that typically is in the area. You may also notice it in other areas of the home as well.

Unwanted Pests:

Bugs, rodents, and other pest infestations are common in unprotected crawl spaces. If those infestations are a problem in your home, you would benefit from a crawl space encapsulation.

High Energy Costs:

The high humidity and drafty space below your home impacts the rest of the home as well. Regardless of whether you are trying to heat or cool the living space, it will take more energy to do it. It is common for people to call Epp because their energy bills are out of control.

Benefits of Crawl Space Encapsulation

You don’t typically have to wait long after you have your crawl space encapsulated to experience the benefits. Here are some benefits you can expect.

Mold and Moisture Control:

By cutting off the moisture and drying the air, crawl space encapsulation effectively helps to control mold and mildew.
